I love both of them, if it was thumbs up or down, Cream would win as a band, but friends who saw both , seem to feel that Redding , and Mitchell were pretty amazeing also. I enjoy MM's drumming, he seems to be comming from the same "sons of Elvin Jones " school as Ginger Baker ( this is meant as big ass complement ). Hendrix so dominated that group ( his group ..oh yeah )that I think the other guys get overlooked . Interestingly , though Hendrix is the better know, possibly greater, artist, I don't see him as all that influential due to the fact he was so unique . Cream had a huge and direct influence on many of the bands of the day ( especially the kind of bands a lot of us here on the forum like ).
Love 'em both .
